Saving Wildlife Together

Our Friends Scheme is an excellent way to support our conservation work. We are committed to saving threatened animals, plants, habitats and communities around the world, but we could not continue this amazing work without the support and generosity of individuals like you.

How can your donations help?

Over the course of one year…

A regular £5 gift

Could contribute to the training of three community teachers in Sahamalaza, northwest Madagascar, who can then teach classes of 30 primary school children each in wildlife conservation.

A regular £10 gift

Could pay for 40 trees per month to be replanted connecting fragmented forest on Negros, Philippines – which is a world conservation ‘hot spot.’

A regular £20 gift

Could contribute to the transport costs of three African penguin chicks from a local African care centre to colonies in South Africa's Western Cape for release back into the wild.

How we show our appreciation

To show our appreciation for ongoing support, our Friends receive:

  • An invite to an exclusive annual Friends’ event
  • A biannual Zoo Mag , complete with conservation project updates
  • A Friends’ membership card, entitling the holder plus four guests to 20% discount off Zoo and Wild Place entry
  • Your name on a Friends’ name board online
  • A Friends trolley -coin keyring and bag for life
